"...takes the lid off the difficult career questions we all face, and provides pointed advice for finding healthy, empowering work."-Steve…Woodruff, Author, Clarity WinsThe Great Resignation, the Great Reshuffling, and Quiet Quitting-clearly something is not right at work. Rates of stress, anxiety, and depression were skyrocketing before the COVID-19 pandemic. Tied to their smartphones 24/7, many people were overworking, measuring their self-worth and value by how busy they were. They compared their lives to the filtered lives of peers on social media. They worked in corporate cultures that didn't support employees, and they undervalued the importance of their own mental and physical health. During the pandemic's height in 2020, many people were forced to stay home. Some found themselves without a job at all; others had to learn to do their jobs remotely. It was during this "down time" that many people realized that busyness, overworking, overconsumption, avoidance, and numbing weren't helping. In fact, the whole approach was batshit crazy. In This Isn't Working! Evolving the Way We Work to Decrease Stress, Anxiety, and Depression, career transition expert Catherine Altman Morgan explains why we shouldn't be striving to get back to "normal," because normal wasn't all that great. Instead, we need to EVOLVE. Through her company, Point A to Point B Transitions Inc., Catherine has worked with many clients who suffer with physical and mental health issues caused by work-related stress. In this book she offers techniques and strategies to rethink how we live and work and start feeling better almost immediately. "I need this book. You might too! If you've felt a bit dented, here's the fix!" -Chris Brogan, Chief of Staff, Appfire.com

&“As poet, prophet, and priest, Thurman builds upon a powerful legacy of ancestral hope: belief in a liberating God who…can always be found &‘in and among the struggling.&’&”—Yolanda PierceA universal beacon of hope and endurance for people of all faiths seeking to meet the challenges, uncertainties, and joys of lifeHoward Thurman&’s Meditations of the Heart is a beautiful collection of over 150 prayers, poems, and meditations on prayer, community, and the joys and rituals of life by one of our greatest spiritual leaders. Thurman, a spiritualist and mystic, was renowned for the quiet beauty of his reflections on humanity and our relationship with God.In a new foreword, Yolanda Pierce, dean of Howard University&’s School of Divinity, calls attention to the justice-centered theological framework of Thurman&’s words. Pierce notes how Thurman brings to light an image of God who can always be found &“in and among the struggling,&” both in times of weariness and in strength.First written for and shared with his congregation of the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples in San Francisco, California, these meditations sustain, elevate, and inspire. They are a universal beacon of hope and endurance for people of all faiths seeking to meet the challenges, uncertainties, and joys of everyday life with a renewed and liberating faith.
By Caleb Smith. 2023
How nineteenth-century “disciplines of attention” anticipated the contemporary concern with mindfulness and being “spiritual but not religious”Today, we’re driven to…distraction, our attention overwhelmed by the many demands upon it—most of which emanate from our beeping and blinking digital devices. This may seem like a decidedly twenty-first-century problem, but, as Caleb Smith shows in this elegantly written, meditative work, distraction was also a serious concern in American culture two centuries ago. In Thoreau’s Axe, Smith explores the strange, beautiful archives of the nineteenth-century attention revival—from a Protestant minister’s warning against frivolous thoughts to Thoreau’s reflections on wakefulness at Walden Pond. Smith examines how Americans came to embrace attention, mindfulness, and other ways of being “spiritual but not religious,” and how older Christian ideas about temptation and spiritual devotion endure in our modern ideas about distraction and attention.Smith explains that nineteenth-century worries over attention developed in response to what were seen as the damaging mental effects of new technologies and economic systems. A “wandering mind,” once diagnosed, was in need of therapy or rehabilitation. Modeling his text after nineteenth-century books of devotion, Smith offers close readings of twenty-eight short passages about attention. Considering social reformers who designed moral training for the masses, religious leaders who organized Christian revivals, and spiritual seekers like Thoreau who experimented with regimens of simplified living and transcendental mysticism, Smith shows how disciplines of attention became the spiritual exercises of a distracted age.

By Timothy Goodman. 2023

While there, he fell in love in a way he never had before. For the first time in his life, he let himself be loved and finally, truly loved someone else.

By Jay Shetty. 2020
Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the #1 podcast On Purpose, distills the timeless wisdom he learned as…a monk into practical steps anyone can take every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.When you think like a monk, you&’ll understand: -How to overcome negativity -How to stop overthinking -Why comparison kills love -How to use your fear -Why you can&’t find happiness by looking for it -How to learn from everyone you meet -Why you are not your thoughts -How to find your purpose -Why kindness is crucial to success -And much more... Shetty grew up in a family where you could become one of three things—a doctor, a lawyer, or a failure. His family was convinced he had chosen option three: instead of attending his college graduation ceremony, he headed to India to become a monk, to meditate every day for four to eight hours, and devote his life to helping others. After three years, one of his teachers told him that he would have more impact on the world if he left the monk&’s path to share his experience and wisdom with others. Heavily in debt, and with no recognizable skills on his résumé, he moved back home in north London with his parents. Shetty reconnected with old school friends—many working for some of the world&’s largest corporations—who were experiencing tremendous stress, pressure, and unhappiness, and they invited Shetty to coach them on well-being, purpose, and mindfulness. Since then, Shetty has become one of the world&’s most popular influencers. In 2017, he was named in the Forbes magazine 30-under-30 for being a game-changer in the world of media. In 2018, he had the #1 video on Facebook with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 38 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos which have amassed more than 8 billion views, and his podcast, On Purpose, is consistently ranked the world&’s #1 Health and Wellness podcast. In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Combining ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us. He transforms abstract lessons into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve relationships, and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can—and should—think like a monk.

By Terry Guindi. 2011
La felicidad es un camino, y lo que nos impide vivir así es el miedo. Este libro explica paso a…paso, siguiendo la línea de los bestsellers anteriores de la autora, cómo hacer que la felicidad se convierta en tu camino de vida y que tus miedos se desvanezcan. ¿Qué tan valiente eres para ser feliz? es una guía que te lleva de la mano al lector dándole herramientas para identificar las creencias limitantes que subyacen el subconsciente y que una vez que se traen a la luz se pueden transformar para abrazar un nuevo modo de vida. No hay libro de autoayuda, curso o conferencia capaz de aportar algo cuando al receptor los mensajes (que recibe con tedio y escepticismo) le parecen impuestos. Para romper esa barrera, la autora ofrece en las páginas de este libro historias de éxito de decenas de personas que (en gran medida gracias a sus conferencias y libros anteriores) han logrado superar sus miedos y abrazar una existencia libre de miedos y fracasos autoimpuestos. La intención del libro, en breve, es atrapar al lector por medio de vivencias cotidianas y universales que le permitan conectarse con sus sentimientos más profundos y con el mago interno que todos llevamos dentro. Además de fungir como una guía, el libro es un reto para cualquiera que quiera, de una buena vez por todas, darle a su vida esa vuelta de tuerca que necesita. Los temores y la inseguridad son fantasmas de los que todos estamos rodeados, capaces de ensombrecer la existencia de cualquiera: no sólo le tememos a lo que somos y nos dejamos empequeñecer por lo que algún día fuimos: en el fondo, anidan en nosotros los miedos productos de la incertidumbre de lo que el día de mañana llegaremos (o no) a ser. En este libro, la autora demuestra que el momento de tomar las riendas de nuestra propia vida es impostergable, y que ha llegado el momento de tomar el lugar del piloto para que alguien más tome el del copiloto. La conciencia individual lleva a la colectiva. Terry Guindi ha comprobado con su bestseller Los secretos detrás del secreto que tiene decenas de lectores que la siguen día a día queriendo salir de sus zonas de confort y tomar el riesgo de una aventura que vale la pena.
